No story and so on, 26 September 2014
Author: kosmasp

If it actually a had a better (more decent) story this would be even better. But as it is, this is an amazing display in action choreography. There's always favorites in terms of, what people will like to see shown in a hands on (sorry for the pun) movie like this. And while this does not fail to deliver (framing, sound and setting in general, not to mention the choreography itself), some might want other things from their action movies.

But if you're in it for the really well executed (no pun intended here) scenes of (pretend) violence, look no further. The story as written before is very simple, but it's nothing more than an excuse for people to get it on (fighting-wise). A really more than decent effort in the martial arts scene
